Seriously one of the best apps for any transit I have witnessed. Compared to Connecticut (SEAT bus) and everywhere else, this is how buses should be. You can look up your trip from your current location, it will GPS you to the proper bus stop, you can even watch the buses drive around on the app. You can buy tickets via your phone and even pay with your app. Hands down a must have if you're car less in the Des Moines area.

Mostly accurate and useful. Occasional bugs seem to get worked out fast enough. Really makes traveling with Des Moines Public transportation much easier.

Up until this latest update I use this app almost every day and it works well, however after updating the app is very slow causing some awkward moments when I go to get on the bus and have to wait for the app to load, then wait some more for the ticket to load.
